5:27pm
find him guilty. a lot of well-known people, have a better chance of getting a not guilty verdict than anybody else. >>pam: stand also testified today, he was the former giants trainer. >> he did, that's why i said to stay on message to the jury. he came in and said it i noticed that there was acne on his back, i notice how big he was. that's why means stay on message, just admit straight out to the jury quit fighting the hat size, the acne that people are lying whether he took a nap. the issue did he know steroids? that is the message. tomorrow more evidence and more ballplayers. the one that's going to be interesting is bobby, when he comes and i believe he's going to testify. barry bonds told me that he was taking steroids.
